ChipWhisperer Jupyter Notebook Repository

Welcome to the ultimate collection of ChipWhisperer Jupyter notebooks.

Repo Contents

This repository serves multiple purposes:

  • Courses (see courses) in Side-Channel Analysis (SCA) along with Fault Injection. These are organized to align with commercial course content on, but many are stand-alone and can serve as a self-taught course.

    • Course notebooks are open-source and you can follow along at your own pace too!

    • See for more details.

  • Experiments (see experiments) showcasing various things you can do with the ChipWhisperer platform. These notebooks may have less background, often require certain hardware to perform the experiments, and may be in a work in progress state.

  • Demos (see demos) of various features and targets, such as ChipWhisperer-Pro streaming mode being used to capture long power traces, or hardware AES running on the CW305 FPGA board.

  • Many notebooks have been overhauled and renamed - if you're looking for the previous version, see the archive directory (preserved here to keep links less broken on the internet).
